January 8, 2013
This week, Julian delivered Christmas encouragement to Royal Mail posties at York Delivery Office
On Monday 17th December, Julian visited Royal Mail’s York delivery office on Leeman Road to pass on best Christmas wishes and encouragement to the postmen and women at their busiest time of year.
Julian was shown round the office by local Delivery Office staff and was introduced to all the postmen and women who are working hard doing their bit to sort and deliver all the cards and parcels in the York area in the run-up to Christmas.
Julian said: “It was great to meet the hard-working Royal Mail postmen and women at York delivery office and to see at first hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.
Paul Wilkins, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager at York said: “Christmas is the busiest time of year for Royal Mail. Our people really do pull out all the stops throughout the year to ensure mail is delivered quickly, but even more so over the busy festive period. We are grateful that Julian Sturdy MP came along to see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.”
The recommended last posting dates for mail are:
- Thursday 20 December for 1st Class items
- Tuesday 18 December for 2nd Class items
